Well not really a shock, but you know…

Islamic Textbook Teaches It’s OK to Kill – A federal investigation released Wednesday reveals that some Islamic textbooks are teaching kids it’s okay to kill adulterers and converts from Islam.

The books have been used by the Islamic Saudi Academy, which teaches 900 students in grades K-12 at two campuses in Alexandria and Fairfax. The school receives much of its funding from the Saudi government

Passages in their textbooks state that “the Jews conspired against Islam and its people” and that Muslims are permitted to take the lives and property of those deemed “polytheists.”

The academy has come under scrutiny from critics who allege that it is teaching an intolerant brand of Islam.

Last year, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, a panel formed by Congress, recommended the school be shut down out of concern it promoted violence.

“We feel more confident that the potential problems we flagged before really are there,” said the commission’s spokeswoman, Judith Ingram, after the content of textbooks were reviewed

In the review, the panel recommended that the school make all of its textbooks available to the State Department so changes can be made before the next school year.

Also not really a shock is that this story won’t be found in the “mainstream” media, for obvious reasons.

    This is egregious. No major religion in modern times teaches hate and advocates killing. Whatever this academy is teaching, it isn’t religion.

    The STOP HONORCIDE! campaign was launched on Mother’s Day 2008. The goal of the campaign is to prosecute honorcides to the fullest extent of the law. We want honorcide to be classified as a hate crime and we advocate for every existing hate crime legislation to be amended to include honorcide.

    well, Muslims against Sharia, that sounds just wonderful and I hope you can get change. Until then, we are dealing with a barbaric, midevil thing that calls itself a religion. If “honorcide” can be stopped I will jump for joy but still be saddened by the lack of human rights in the so-called religion of Islam.

    I agree with ERS, but their is always going to be extremist or some sort of group that does not follow the teachings. Especially for a religion that is the fastest growing would have something like this and their can be several reasons for it.
